Glucose biosensors have proved an enormous success and are used by a growing number of people with diabetes throughout the world. There are several other notable biosensor developments that are already having an impact on analytical science, but the vast majority of possibilities remain restricted to the realm of academic papers. Generic goals may be identified which underpin more applied biosensor programmes and tackle some of the principal hurdles to the widespread adoption of biosensor technology for analysis. The design of integrated systems, approaches to patterning sensitive elements and methods to improve the sensitivity, stability and selectivity of biosensors are key areas which are being tackled in our laboratories. This review considers some recent progress under each of these headings and speculates on the socio-economic impact of success.
